Seward outlasted Clarendon 120-113 Friday afternoon at the Perryman Center in Garden City. Seward scored 62 second half points and made 54 percent of their shots. The Saints made 47 field goals and four three pointers. Clarendon (4-2) had a different strategy. The Bulldogs were 19-55 from three point range. This was a tight game throughout with Seward's biggest lead being 11 in the first half and Clarendon led by as many as eight. Seward finished the game on a 35-20 run. Head coach Bryan Zollinger wasn't pleased. "I'm really unhappy with our team today," Zollinger said. "I thought it was probably one of our poorest efforts intensity wise and attitude wise. This is one of those games I felt like we should have won by 25."
